See you Sunday and KEEP PRAYING!!!
One issue is the outside sign on the front of the building. The front is an awesome place to put our name to let others know this is Meadow Spring. But we need your ideas for the sign.
We are pretty well set on the lower part saying "Meadow Spring", but as you look at the picture there is potential for something else to be put on the higher part. The picture shows a clock but it doesn't have to be a clock. It could be a cross? It could be a design? What kind of design?
What are your ideas and suggestions?
If you prefer not to post your ideas on Facebook for others to see, you can email them directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to your ideas and suggestions!
It's time to start counting the chickens because we just received word that the seller has accepted our offer and has signed the purchase agreement!!! Man...I am so excited I can't type fast enough!!!!!
It still needs to go through attorney review, title work, and building inspection - so it's not completely done yet but this is HUGE!!! It is so huge, I'm putting the Set Up and Tear Down Team on notice that they will be without a job in a few months!!!!
Wow!!! Oh wow! Oh wow!!
There is no doubt this is the hand of God!! It was only a few weeks ago that it looked like it was a dead deal. But due to some creative thinking on the part of the Leadership Team, it was resurrected and went through!
There is no doubt this is a direct result of your prayers too!! But let's not stop praying. There is much work ahead of us and this Sunday, I will explain a major and totally exciting detail about this that I can't explain here!!! It will make your jaw drop open!!!
So...this is great news and the news is even better and I will explain on Sunday!!!
See you then!!! (And start packing!!)
We just got word that a homeless shelter (The Simpson Shelter) in downtown Minneapolis had an unfortunate cancellation by the group scheduled to serve the evening meal this Sunday. We'd like to do everything possible to help and fill this need!
We are looking for 6-12 individuals who are willing to give 3-4 hours of their time THIS SUNDAY night to serve the evening meal to 75-100 homeless people. All that is needed from you is your time and your heart to serve. If you can help, email your name and phone number to me at email@example.com or leave a comment or message me.
This is open to anyone - whether you attend Meadow or not.
We need to know by Thursday evening if you can help so check your schedules and let me know!
"While I have very much enjoyed my time serving as Intern Worship Leader at Meadow Spring, I want to inform you that I do not plan on pursuing a permanent part-time status. I am certainly committed to finishing our the original six-month agreement, but with graduate studies, my new position at Crown College, and other elements in my life at this time, I feel that this is the best decision for both myself and for Meadow. I can feel that with everything going on in my life at this time, there is high potential for burnout."
Keldon has been a wonderful worship leader and this letter was accepted with regrets by the Leadership Team. Personally, I am absolutely impressed with how Keldon is handling this - even stating that if we find someone to replace him before his six-month internship is over, he will step aside and let the new person take over. Keldon is actually helping us look for a replacement by giving us names of potential candidates which we will be contacting. Totally impressive! Thanks Keldon!
Keldon also said he would be willing to stay at Meadow and continue playing in the band but the staff/leadership role is just too much for him to handle now with the season of life he is in right now. This again is a reflection of his integrity and love for Meadow. And of course we would love to have him stay and play in the band! He is an amazing musician!
We will continue to pursue excellance in our music and worship ministry seeking someone who fits our style and is qualified to lead. And because of the way Keldon is handling this, we will not skip a beat in terms of momentum in our worship.
So, in addition to the individuals I am contacting, if you know of someone who might be qualified to lead our band and worship ministry, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next time you see Keldon, tell him thanks and that you are glad he will be sticking around! Also, let's pray that God will lead us to the right man or woman who will take our worship ministry to the next level!
You've been thinking about checking out Meadow. You've been curious as to what it's all about and how church can be done in a movie theatre. This Sunday is a perfect day to come check it out and experience it for yourself. Why?
Just some of the reasons why this Sunday is a great day to check out Meadow...
Convinced yet that this Sunday is a great day to come to Meadow?
We meet at 9:30 am in the Marcus Movie Theatres located in the Shakopee Town Square. For more info and directions just go to our web site at MeadowSpring.org.
I hope to see you Sunday!

Let's also be clear that this is NOT a done deal yet. Yes, we have submitted a Purchase Agreement to the seller but we have not heard back from them yet. Things like this take time and there are several elements that have to fall into place before it becomes reality. AND reality is that at anytime something could come up that kills the deal.
When I spoke with Mollie, I told her that IF this becomes reality, we will have a whole lot more to say. But right now there really isn't much to say except we have submitted a purchase agreement and offer to the seller.
It also appears based on some early comments from a few Chaska residents, not everyone will be as excited about this as we are. And I totally understand. There are several vacant buildings in downtown Chaska and the desire is for more businesses to move into the downtown area. I respect and understand their feelings and opinions. We need to pray that IF this becomes a done deal, our presence in downtown Chaska will be a blessing to the downtown area and to the city of Chaska.
If anyone would like to contact me to share their opinions, I would love to listen. I can be emailed at email@example.com.
We had a minor set back and scare a week ago and actually thought the deal was headed for the grave yard, but thanks to your prayers there has been new life breathed into it and it is alive once again and we are closer than ever to making this a reality.
But we aren't there yet. Here's what's happening this week:
Again, let me emphasize that this is not a done deal yet. There are still some critical elements that need to be taken care of and questions answered.
What IS important is that we keep praying. Pray for:
